Birmingham City are reportedly interested in taking Everton youngster Ademola Lookman on loan for the 2018/19 Sky Bet Championship season, Vital Birmingham can reveal.

The 20-year-old, who moved to the Toffees from Charlton Athletic in January 2017, spent half of last season on loan to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, where he made 11 appearances in all, scoring five goals in the process, including a winner on his debut against Borussia Monchengladbach.

And with new manager Marco Silva coming into the fold with Everton in the last week, it is now our understanding that the former Watford boss would like the England Under-21 international to get some more game time in English football.

Despite making 24 appearances for Everton’s first team, including 16 last season, Silva believes that Lookman still has a lot to learn and with his undoubted talent, Blues are surely not going to be the only ones interested in his services.

However, interest from Garry Monk’s side could be short-lived with Everton not fully making their mind up yet on whether or not to loan him out into the Championship as even though Silva wants him to get more game time, he still wants to run the rule over him in the next month or so.

Blues fans, would you be interested in the club signing Ademola Lookman? Let us know in the comment section down below!

  • It appears the manager is looking at young hungry players,very refreshing to see,would wish this more than washed out oldies who are extending their career’s for one final huge season ( John Terry for example. Way to go….KRO

    • Probably because he’ll be playing for Swansea in the Championship. Ademolah is a good striker. Give him service and he’ll finish. Nothing like Boga. I’d still prefer us to get our own players over loans. Maybe shows where we are financially.

  • It’s being said elsewhere the link is a hoax.
    However, he’s a very pacey youngster and I think he would do well in the Championship.
    I also think he’d be a very different prospect to Boga.
    If we are to have loans, then I wouldn’t mind Lookman being one of them.

  • Every time I’ve seen him play club and country , he has impressed sadly I think he will be out of our price range. I’d love to be wrong, but whoever the monk brings in I’m sure he can mold into a decent team full of energy. Kro

  • We have a great prospect in RONAN HALE just back from Derry City. A young eager lad with all the qualities to replace Juk, who is a centre forward who only scored 5 League goals in 35 appearance’s 4 of those in the last month this is not the answer for BCFC , true he runs around a lot but never assists his fellow forwards when they are in a better position. Time for him to go and give youth a chance…

    • You have hit the nail on the head with Ronan,seems a natural goalscorer to me.Also forget these young loanees from other clubs,we have got our own brilliant youth scheme including goalkeepers

  • I say good to hear about players like luckman but I think we should get Pederson over the line first seems like the same old story at Birmingham leave everything to the end of the transfer window
